2/20/2013 - PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, COLO. -- Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, an installation of the 45th Space Wing, was awarded the Headquarters AFPSC Installation Energy Performance Award for fiscal year 2012.

The IEPA program, developed in 2012, is an AFSPC initiative to recognize the installation that best meets the energy focus for that year. "In 2012, we needed to improve energy project execution. Therefore, the criteria centered on programming solid energy projects and awarding those projects within 120 days of Authority to Advertise," said Capt. Vincent Bongioanni, Headquarters AFSPC deputy energy branch chief.

Nineteen installations competed for the award and CCAFS won with a total of 39.4 out of 45 possible points.

"Cape Canaveral maxed out points for programming the installation's allotted share of AFSPC Energy Focus Funds and negotiating project bids within 120 days of receiving Authority to Advertise," said Bongioanni. "They also earned extra points for awarding additional projects in excess of their original share of funds."

The award includes a trophy and command recognition to the winning installation.

The unique travelling trophy is solar-powered and made out of renewable materials and a recycled electricity meter with its own built-in micro-grid. On the back of this trophy, CCAFS has the distinct honor of being listed as the first recipient.

The criteria for 2013's award are being developed with a focus on mission energy.
